Idylic Hills chardy.
Our favourite white variety gets the royal treatment.
Mr Riggs Idle Lane Chardonnay 2022
$105 / 6PK
If you want great wine, you go to Ben Riggs. That's what most of McLaren Vale and surrounds would tell you, too. We pleaded for a small parcel of chardy, and we weren't disappointed with the result.

Why do we love this wine?
There's a very limited amount of chardy floating around the Adelaide Hills at the moment (and, in a lot of Australia for that matter), so we weren't holding our breath when we asked our mofo favourite producer Mr Riggs for some. Sure enough, he managed to wrangle a small parcel to deliver us this unbelievably good drop. Saline and citrus driven, with a smattering of vanilla and nuts from some time in seasoned oak. You'd be surprised at how easily this drinks now, but will guarantee a few years of pleasure-filled drinking to come.
Tell me what you really think.
Wine nerd stuff
It’s cool, we get it, you want to know absolutely everything about this wine. Well here you go, go nuts.
